as many as is the right idiom. B and C are out.

In A 'which' incorrectly modifies 'rockies'. It must modify 'Bear' instead.

In E Males are compared with 'range' incorrectly.

D is the correct answer

I as for as I know
'Whereas' and 'while' show clauses in direct opposition to each other
•Whereas you have lots of time to do your homework, I have very little time indeed.
•Mary is rich, while I am poor

here whereas X ,Y will
Will -Express future intent
confused by the tense here, hope someone can clarify

Only D has the correct comparison , C could have been a contender but it lost the chance when it changed the meaning and also introduced a pronoun number error(their referring to the bear)

Hello, Can any expert, daagh/Veritaskarishma/generis/ajitesharun/GMATninja) please clarify my queries?
Does not verb shift distort the meaning of the sentence in option D?
Can anyone explain parallelism in second part of the sentence (option D)?

Hi Raxit85,

It'd help if you could give me an idea about how you are looking at option D. What are the meaning and parallelism issues you've identified?

In option D, first part of comparison(before comma) mentions present tense, meant process of occupying usually happens but in second part of suddenly verb changed to future tense. Does the context really required to shift the verb tense???
Regarding parallelism query, I got clarity. According to me, second part of sentence represents parallelism between noun phrase, I.e. a male will cover 200 to 500 and a male will cover occasionally as many as 600.
I was thinking wrongly about usage of "and" with respect to meaning.

That's a great question. We could read that portion as "a male will cover X miles (in its lifetime)" to understand the meaning (the intended meaning of the sentence is more "general" than "lifetime" though). This is a valid way to talk about what someone or something will generally do. For example:

A star will burn more than X tons of hydrogen in its lifetime.

We won't worry too much about the fact that the tenses are different in the first and second halves of option D. They don't have to be the same (we don't have to make sure that every verb in a sentence has the same tense).

As for the as many as: you're absolutely right. It's meant to be read as as many as 600 (miles).
